More about Manchester


L’Arche Manchester opened its doors in May 2013. We are still so young.

  • We are still only one house welcoming four people with learning disabilities. 
  • We don't offer any day services yet. 
  • We are only just beginning to design our garden to meet our needs.  
  • BUT we have done so much already in our first two years. 
  • We have great links with our local neighourhood, have developed partnerships with local churches and are loved and valued members of our local communities.  
  • With no statistical evidence to support this, we think of Manchester as the second city in the UK.
  • We want to be a Mancunian Community! 
  • More than half our assistant team have been part of the community since we opened our doors and are rooted in the local area. 
  • We also have room each year to welcome a small number of assistants from around the world to come and experience life in L’Arche and in Manchester.
